It is no secret that the beauty industry is constantly evolving as skincare and beauty trends come and go. Oftentimes, fads change so quickly, it can seem overwhelming to clients. We selected Sharon Grasso, one of the top celebrity aesthetic practitioners, to share up-to-the-minute beauty tips and trends for summer 2022. As the founder of Permanent Touch Cosmetics, who holds dual licenses in aesthetics and permanent makeup, Sharon’s key recommendation to consumers this summer is to be careful when selecting technology for skin care needs. One should start by researching the efficacy of the procedure to ensure you are receiving good value.
Sharon, now that summer has finally arrived, we are spending more time outdoors engaging in different activities and events. What are some of the latest beauty trends for summer 2022?
One of the most sought-after treatments this summer is Sciton’s Moxi Micro laser peel. This is a non-ablative laser peel with little to no down time that can do everything from skin polishing to rejuvenation making the skin appear younger, brighter, and healthier. It even reduces the appearance of epidermal melasma and is safe for all skin types year-round. Another trend is BBL Hero which treats all types of sun damage for the entire body.
Botox injections have soared over the past few years, becoming the top non-invasive cosmetic procedure. The National Society of Plastic Surgeons reported there were 4.4 million Botox procedures done in 2020. What tips can you give beauty clients to help prolong the effects of Botox injections during the summer?
Excessive exercise, fast metabolism, stress levels and, believe it or not, hot yoga can make Botox injectables breakdown more quickly. Also, be sure to avoid the sun as much as possible; exposure to UV Rays can cause the blood to circulate and dissolve the Botox at a faster rate. It has been said that 50mg of Zinc daily can help prolong the results of Botox injections.
Thick Brows seem to be trending for the past few years, but, as rumor has it, what people want for eyebrows seem to be traveling back in time. What is the current brow trend for summer?
A more natural brow is in, and the big brows of Instagram along with Microblading are finally on their way out. For natural looking brows, Nanoblading is a much better procedure and one I have always used. Also, soft and feathered looking brows are on trend for summer. This look can be achieved by using our digital micro pigment machine. (Also known as Nano blading).
Full, pouty lips have been popular for years. Is this type of lip augmentation still trending for summer 2022?
The overfilled silicone lip trend is over, and we are now seeing a much more natural look especially with injectables. We are seeing a slight enhancement to the vermillion border including structural enhancement and pillowing on the lower lip.
One final suggestion is to always make sure you use sunscreen; bring it with you everywhere and use it on your face and body, including your lips. The number one trend for summer 2022 is to grab your sunscreen, mascara, lip gloss and be ready to go!
